I've been resisting tweeting about this, because I have little desire to weigh in on the #Marvel discourse. I understand both sides of the argument. But I want to share my own personal experience of recently watching all of the #MCU movies with my sons, now 9 and 7.
After I saw #Endgame and realized the arc came to an incredibly satisfying conclusion, I wanted to start watching them with the kids. We mostly followed the order laid out by my former BuzzFeed colleague, @JennaGuillaume, here,…
@JennaGuillaume ...with one fuckup: We watched the first "Iron Man" first, not the first Cap. I regret it!

1. #Spoilersahead: As much as I love the potential for #minorityandfemalerepresentation in future #MarvelCinematicUniverse films, I still think the way that #Falcon (@AnthonyMackie) got the #CaptainAmericashield is a #copout by @Marvel /@MarvelStudios, since its previous
2. representations of him (including #EndGame) have been less than ideal (a secondary character who got knocked out of fights all the time, paving the way for the observation / reservation that this #passingofthetorch was not earned). And the fact that #SteveRogers (@ChrisEvans)

1/ I can see 5 paths forward for #SCOTUS on the census case. First, if the Court rules against the government, then the issue can be neatly resolved in advance of the June 30 deadline. I see this path as unlikely--based on assignments, it looks like J. Alito has the majority.
2/ Second, the Court could request supplemental letter briefs about whether, in fact, the June 30 deadline is the real deadline. The Plaintiffs have suggested that the real deadline is October 31.
3/ However, there is a problem with requesting this information: such a request underscores the fact that the Court is deciding the case on an expedited deadline. In other words, speed, rather than accuracy, may be the deciding factor. That move would convey the wrong message.

Now it's officially okay to post #Endgame spoilers, here's my nerdy gripe (short thread):

Thanos does not understand population growth, and by his own logic doomed the universe.
Thanos was a Malthusian: he believes populations will grow to use up all resources and leave people living on the edge of sustenance, in misery.

His solution was to kill off half the population of the universe, at random, so there were more resources per survivor.
Why he couldn't just double the resources is an open question. But by his logic, so far, so good.

But then he destroys the Infinity Stones, meaning he can never do it again. So…what happens when populations return to their old levels? That might only take decades.

In the past 10 days, I watched all films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some I'd seen before, others I watched for the very first time. The following is a thread of the #MCU films ranked from worst to best, in my opinion.
#22: The Incredible Hulk - This story is a total downer. Was I ever supposed to feel happy while watching this movie? This was not your typical “origin story” as it was basically an unofficial sequel to the 2003 Hulk film. To me, the film lacked character and a purpose....
...While parts of the first act in Brazil were promising, the rest was tiresome, asking myself why I should care about what my eyes were watching and my brain was processing. Easily the most forgettable of the 22 films.

MCU, THREAD I 1) OK, just watched the latest Spider-Man: Far from Home trailer,’s time...I think to truly understand and appreciate the scope of what the MCU just completed with Avengers: Endgame, it’s important to leave the fantasy world for a bit and stay in real life.
2) 1999, Marvel’s stock price was .50. That’s fifty cents. They had been reeling from the 1995 $150m purchase of SkyBox to expand its space in the trading card market. They filed for bankruptcy the next year and laid off a third of their employees
3) They sold FF, X-Men and Spider-Man. As a diehard Make Mine Marvel guy since the early 1970s, Iron Man was a frontline Avenger, but his own comic never moved me. His greatest villains, Modok, The Mandarin, were meh. #Endgame was a bouquet to Robert Downey, Jr. cuz he saved them

"..And whoever saves one, it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.."(Quran 5:32)
And without realizing the MCU manifested the most heroic act a Muslim could do, saving Tony Starks life that one day on May 2, 2008, Ho Yinsen indirectly ends up saving the whole universe in 2023.
Yinsen led by example of Islam in terms of seeing the best in people. He knew Starks military involvement in foreign soil was the whole reason that he was in a terrorist camp, also likely why he lost his whole family yet he still spoke to Tony with respect.
He spoke to the side of Tony that wanted good for humanity. He patiently educated him on the what/where his weapons have been going and used for. He looks over Tony's mistakes.

Jim Starlin, creator of Thanos, Gamora and Drax, stated he gets more royalties from one movie based on his DC work than all the films featuring his Marvel work.
In fact, just to show you how much a debt the MCU owes to Jim Starlin, he created the Infinity Stones. He also spearheaded the Infinity Gauntlet event (one of the most renowned crossovers in the history of comics) which is the basis for the movie's Infinity Saga.
The comics industry and its Work-For-Hire model was in almost a precursor to the modern hell of the gig economy.

Creators lost any and all rights to anything they created while under contract, and with that potentially millions in royalties from Marvel's billion dollar empire.

Youths, I tell you, one of the worst things about getting old is that you can no longer quite shake off hangovers like you used to. I blame @jerry_jtaylor for leading me into excess.
Hangover cure: a giant, three-egg-and-pesto sandwich followed by 3+ hours of grown men play-acting superheroes for my enjoyment. #Endgame
Before I head to the movie, and apropos of absolutely nothing, here is my all-time favorite piece of stock art. I want to use it in every single story about US politics.

I plan to watch and review every Godzilla movie before the new one comes out. First one's already written cuz I've seen the original several times. They'll be up on my new Patreon page once I write a few more. Should be fun. Cannot wait for Smog Monster. (it's my favorite)
Godzilla is a lot like Freddy Krueger; the first film is super dark and the villain is truly disturbing. Two or three sequels later the tone is entirely different and the villain is being a wise-ass.
btw I do not claim to be any sort of expert on this franchise. But I've only seen a few of the Godzilla movies, and those were probably the Americanized re-dub garbage versions. And I write about genre movies all the time. So there.

I was today years old when I found out one of my favorite movies: Adventures in Babysitting (1987) has a remake & it was also the 100th Disney Channel Original Movie (DCOM).
So I'll be watching the original Adventures in Babysitting before I watch the remake some other time. I'm no doubt gonna find problems bc y'know...1980s and all
Chris dancing & lip syncing to The Crystals', "And then he kissed me" is a mood!

"Yeah, Marvel Studios just really is that much better at this than everyone else" - @tweettal this morning #Endgame
Also the important test: double films tend not to work, ever really (Justice League 1 + 2, Matrix 2+3, Casino Royale + Quantum of Solace, etc).

This is very contrarian, despite the premise of a Cinematic Universe. Marvel is smart to position it differently

#EndGame is approaching. What @mitchellvii has referred to as

#SlowWalker is about to be presented to the American People as

a Rollout involving Hearings, Indictments & HIGH PROFILE Arrests

that WILL stand up in Court.

When the full Scope of what they did is known=RAGE!
Don Jr. may very well be indicted in the days to come.

Before "Trump Supporters" start running around with their Hair ON FIRE,

Look at the last post's picture.

Griffin was posed & told to adopt that expression

As a MESSAGE to @realDonaldTrump

It's now clear there's no Law the Left will not ignore or break

in their pursuit to bring down the President.

Well, it will soon become crystal clear to these Vile Stealth Marxists

SHITWEASELS that their Endless Bag of Dirty Tricks is powerless to stop

what's coming

high-level Illuminati members believe that not only will they face justice at Tribunals.. but once put to death they will reincarnate and return as more powerful beings to rule in their New World Order.. their Reptilian controllers told them this complete lie #QAnon
deception and betrayal are fundamental aspects of those on the path of service-to-self..what we would recognize as evil..these Illuminati members..according to the Law of One..can continue to follow that path up to the 5th density..and no further..but they won’t be doing it here
there is a force in the universe that is unable to see the fundamental reality underneath it all..which is LOVE..when you understand the impact of this planet moving into a higher density of energy..positively realize that NONE of these negative entities can remain
